Description

2Awesome Studio is a Dutch independent game development studio composed of David Jimenez and Alejandro Santiago. Adding awesomeness to reality by developing video games with new and addictive mechanics.

History

Early history

David Jimenez and Alejandro Santiago met back in 2006 here in the Netherlands despite being both originally from Barcelona (Spain). While working full time jobs at the European Space Agency as engineers, they started dreaming about developing videogames in their spare time. This was an old childhood dream for both, and over the years that followed they started developing them separately at first, while coursing different videogames related studies on top of their engineering degrees and full time jobs. David developed Castle Walk, Tyrian Reborn and Super Stick Fighter 2 Turbo and took a special interest in game design with a strong focus on gameplay programming. Alejandro developed UltraMagic Balloons Target, AeonSpace fighters and UOC Race amongst others.

Team Up

Back in 2009 David and Alejandro teamed up and started sharing their passion about videogames development. Later on they started working on Dimension Jumper an Xbox Live Indie Game using XNA that served as a stepping stone and background for the future. On January 2013, David and Alejandro started working together as 2Awesome Studio (even if not setup as a company at that time) and moved from XNA to Unity development.

Recent Activities

On January 2014, 2Awesome Studio participated to the Global Game Jam in Amsterdam where they collaborated with a group of artists and a musician and they developed a 2D platformer. Some of the team members decided to push forward for 2 or 3 months and release freely a more polished demo titled Brushed Away In parallel, 2Awesome Studio had been developing Dimension Drive (a follow up of Dimension Jumper). In 2015, Dimension Drive was succesfully funded in Kickstarter by almost 1200 backers to the tune of $42000. Dimension Drive has already been selected for several awards such as Indie Prize Europe 16 Showcase selection and Momocon Indie Game Award 16 winner.
